Guilt of Lee Harvey Oswald
Guilt of Lee Harvey Oswald

To understand the assassination, it is imperative to first understand Lee Harvey Oswald; the man who brought a nation to its knees on November 22, 1963. In MALCONTENT: Lee Harvey Oswald’s Confession by Conduct, new evidence as seen through the spectrum of Consciousness of Guilt is coupled with the first-ever Computer Voice Stress Analysis of Lee Harvey Oswald. Never before published documents shed new light on a controversy that has raged for over 50 years.

Sean DeGrilla is a seventeen-year veteran of law enforcement and is now in the private sector. His law enforcement training and experience was invaluable to the research and analysis of this work. Sean resides in Florida where he is currently working on a second book; Hunter of Fascists: Lee Harvey Oswald’s Urban Guerilla Warfare.
